Default "road" tune?

im getting an EcuTek tune done by Kingpin Performance next thursday. This whole time I thought i was getting dyno tuned, but i talked to them 2day that I am actually getting a "road" tune? has anyone else had this done? how do these numbers compare to a dyno tune? should i tell them i want a dyno tune instead? thanks.....

You definitely want them to road tune it - but I would think they would start on the dyno to establish a base point and build up from there - and then go on the road to fine tune.

A car that was only tuned on a dyno is not a car that has a complete tune.

road tuning>dyno tuning. But its a HELL of a lot faster and easier to do the major work on the dyno, then tighten it up on the road...

...and most dyno tuning is done from ~2500 - 3000rpm in 3rd or 4th.....that leaves a lot of 'driveability' untuned
